A new befriending scheme that we are launching in partnership with Linking Lives UK. We want to stimulate and strengthen local churches by equipping them to engage in befriending relationships with isolated older people in their communities.
One of the first things we learn from God about humans is that we are not meant to be alone. This is evident in the negative effects that we see on people experiencing loneliness.
…and we believe that He can use local churches to do just that. We hope that through this new scheme we will be able to reach the most isolated, and bring hope and connection to older people experiencing loneliness.
We hope to launch at the beginning of Summer 2022, following our development phase.
Once we launch, you can apply to be a volunteer or make a referral right here on this page!
If you or your church are interested in participating in Two’s Company or would like more information, please contact our Development Officer, Julie Young – firstname.lastname@example.org
